    Hi all, I ordered a Meistersatz auto trans filter kit since I had seen many recommendations for it. However, fcp euro sent me one from Rein auto parts instead. Should I let it go back, or would Rein auto also be good? The gasket consists of metal or aluminum on the outside and black rubber on...

    Early this summer, I fitted a K&N cone filter directly onto my MAF tube as a replacement for the airbox altogether. It sounded awesome and ran great for a while, but then I installed an electric exhaust cutout and things fell apart. In addition to a blow ignition coil (which I swear must have...

    Newbie. 318i. 2001 Not sure what this box is? I used the OEM site and the box did not appear to show what it is? [/IMG] What is the purpose of this box? I've taken it off and it was just full of grit and leaves! Nothing else is it. Should there be some sort of filter? Sorry if this has...

    My car will start normally and idle fine but, when I go into gear and try to move, the car has no power and, if I only lightly feather the gas pedal, it stalls. At first, I thought it was my MAF, which I replaced with a new one about 2 years ago. Why did I think it was the MAF? Well, I...

    I recently became the owner of a 2003 325i. I love the car, but, being so old, it needed a few things here and there. I replaced the headlights Thursday and the horn today so that it would pass inspection and I could move the title to my name. While I was running around today, I noticed the...

    Hello all - This is mt first BMW and I really really enjoy it - wonder why I didn't buy one years ago. Anyway, I do my own general maintenance on my vehicles and am religious about changing fluids. I believe that is what helped me get to 357,000 miles on my Toyota. I am going to change the...

    Hello fellow fanatics! So, I seem to have been losing oil for the past year or so. Every 200 miles I'm having to throw a quart in! There is no dripping on my driveway. Sometimes I can visibly see oil dripping from my oil filter housing. It seems that no matter what I do the o ring comes out of...

    Ok I'm getting a random stall where I have to prime the fuel system with about. 3 key turns and it'll start back up. Sometimes more severe sometimes starts right back up. It has a new fuel pump and fuel filter. Could this be the fuel pressure regulator?

    I'm planing to do a transmission fluid change soon. On rockauto there's an ATP B345 filter kit for 5HP19. Has anyone used this filter kit? What kind of gasket it has?

    Searched around on the forum and couldn't find any info on this... I'm thinking about making my own custom CAI through bits and pieces I can buy at the local auto store and I can't decide on which air filter to go with. I want to stick with the non-oiled filters because of the horror stories of...

    I started changing the belts and pulleys on my 2003 330i (88,000 mi, 60k on the belts). The bolt for the idler pulley felt cross threaded and was very difficult to remove. For better or for worse, I muscled it off and put on the new idler. The bolt was difficult to put back as well, so i took...

    I'm debating getting one, but I'd like a second, third, fourth, and any other opinion before I make the purchase.

    Hey guys! here is some info and hopefully this helps someone with a similar problem. I decided to change my transmission oil after all! after reviewing countless blogs! The following reasons why I decided was from the following; 1. Lifetime oil to BMW (dealership) means up to 100,000 miles...

    Well its time for an oil change in my ///M3, I know the car requires 5.8 quarts of synthetic 10W60 oil and BMW calls for Castrol brand, however, are other brand up to par with Castrol? I am searching online to get the best deal on oil and see Redline brand 10W60 oil is quite a bit cheaper than...

    I need a new air filter, but I don't like the stock one. I like the idea of a k & n filter that I can clean an reuse. I searched a few forums and I didn't find much on k & n filters. If anyone is using k & n filters, what do you think of them? Is there a better aftermarket filter that I can...
